This program from the History Channel takes the viewer to see firsthand the locations throughout the world where the undead are said to still roam. Ghostly apparitions are described by eyewitnesses, while historians recount incidents which left people dead but unable to depart in peace. From the Winchester House in California to the streets of Salem, MA, stories of spirits and hauntings are compiled for the consideration of skeptic and believer alike. This episode examines some of the many stories of the ghosts who haunt the sea. Sometimes, entire ships and crews were lost, only to be seen by other sailors, as was depicted in the poem of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Stories of ghost ships prevail to the present day.
